This exceptionally rare piece has only surfaced a couple of times. This larger format poster was printed on heavier paper stock, with an extremely small print run. They were also very difficult to store, with the majority being destroyed over the years.

Popeye the Sailor is an animated character created by Elzie Crisler Segar. Popeye first appeared in 1929 in a daily comic strip, and was then adapted by Max Fleischer in 1933 to the Popeye that we know and love today.
